About Professor Dickinson
A native Californian, Dickinson has traveled around the globe, but he has never found any location that he likes better than sunny southern California. Hugely prolific, Alan has published dozens of novels and other books, on many subjects, and his popular character, PI Charlie O'Brien - the Christian Detective - is well-loved and getting more popular by the minute!

Watch our Storytellers in Their Element
On September 17, 2019, The Publishing Club held their annual "Storytelling in September" event in Dining Room 1 of the Laguna Woods Performing Arts Center. While nine different storytellers kept them rapt and enchanted, the audience enjoyed a delicious meal.

The Publishing Club of Laguna Woods Village
The Publishing Club of Laguna Woods Village includes established and first-time authors, award-winning writers, poets, and storytellers, all of whom share a common interest in understanding the world of publishing. Among us are authors of memoirs, biographies, humor, poetry, mystery novels, children's books, sci-fi, and more. Some authors use traditional publishing methods; some self-publish their work; and others want a few copies for family and friends. We believe that, even if we may not have a book in us, all of us has at least one story to tell, and we want to help each other tell it - and to then tell more.
